Day 155- Thankful for the Comfort of God’s Word (photos)

 

I discovered this verse when I was a teenager. It was such a comfort to me then, as it has been many times throughout the years since then.It’s amazing how quickly anxious thoughts can multiply if we don’t put our foot down and nix them right away.

We open the door and let them in, so often, because we want to figure it out on our own. Instead we need to tell those thoughts that they are not welcome here and shut the door on them because we KNOW that our Father in Heaven has it all figured out.

He loves us and is able to take care of the problem.

If those thoughts keep knocking at the door, go call your heavenly Father and ask Him to send them away!If Jesus is strong enough to calm the real winds and waves, is He not also able to calm the winds of circumstance and the waves of anxiety and fear?

Here’s another passage that has been a comfort to me for a long time. See if you catch the words that pertain to current events.

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
My God, in whom I trust!”
For it is He who delivers you from the snare of the trapper
And from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His pinions,
And under His wings you may seek refuge;
His faithfulness is a shield and bulwark.

You will not be afraid of the terror by night,
Or of the arrow that flies by day;
Of the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
Or of the destruction that lays waste at noon.
A thousand may fall at your side
And ten thousand at your right hand,
But it shall not approach you.
For He will give His angels charge concerning you,
To guard you in all your ways.” Psalm 91:1-7,11 NASB

 

Today I’m thankful for the comfort that God gives us through His Word! 

I’m thankful that we can trust His word because He is ALWAYS Faithful and True! 

I’m thankful that He is a Refuge to all those who put their trust in Him!

What about you?  Do you find comfort in the Word of God?  If so, what are some other verses that you cling to in difficult times?  Won’t you please leave them for us in the comment section below?

P.S.  The above pics are mine, but I’d like to share them with you if you would like to share them on your social media as a comfort to your friends.  If you would like to leave  a link back to this blog, I would appreciate that, but it is not necessary. 🙂

  1. Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength is a big one for me. Being physically tired all the time can cause spiritual exhaustion as well if I don’t trust and rely on Him for strength. Fatigue is discouraging, especially if I don’t focus on Him. So He has really been working on getting me to rest in Him. I do feel much more peaceful and hopeful these days. I find writing poetry helpful. Sometimes poetry is my prayer. Other times it’s my encouragement. (For myself and others) A bit of humor or quirkiness in there helps too.

    1. Yes, I love that one, too!
      Yes, sometimes all the exhaustions tangle themselves up, and it’s hard to discern which one came first (Like the chicken or the egg 😁 there’s that egg again! 😂).
      Yes, focusing on Him is so important on so many levels, and since it’s the Lord’s joy that is our strength, we must be focusing on Him in our daily walk.
      Praise God that He’s working in this way in your life! He is our peace! That’s great that He is also giving you the inspiration to write poetry and that you’re sharing it to encourage others, too!
      Yes, a cheerful heart is good medicine! Prov. 17:22

  2. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7
